  1. Yeah I worded this awfully, I'll change the rule so it's add 2 points per starship. I would say the easiest thing to do that would be to do some in game testing, but if you don't want to do that I would suggest just finding out what the heaviest thing the landers set down on each moon.
  2. @jinnantonix Awesome job on completing your entry. Finals are starting for me so please excuse the fact that my review of your submission will be delayed. I promise I will get to it, but it likely won't be for about 2 weeks.
  3. My apologies, I looked at those a week ago and thought I replied to you. Yes, those are all fine to use.
  4. Every time I update this thread I see the orange banner telling me not to revive dead threads. It's not my fault I procrastinate months between landing sprees!
  5. Congratulations @king of nowhereon completing the Jool 5 Challenge! Did you complete this mission in science mode or in sandbox mode? Since it appears you had a different Kerbal on each moon, I am unsure whether to place you in Level 3 or Jeb's Level. Either way, the mission thread you put together is one of the most entertaining I've read in a while. All the trials and malfunctions and solar storms you had to deal with made the mission have very real stakes, and it's something that many Jool 5 missions lack. To top all of this off, you did it with Kerbalism installed, and dragged around a self-sufficient greenhouse ship with 400 tons of radiation shielding! Truly a very Kerbal mission Congratulations @Goufalite on completing the Jool 5 Challenge on Level 1! This mission made me incredibly nostalgic for my first Jool 5 mission, both in how the mission was flown and how the video flowed. I am a huge fan of the modular mothership design, and am impressed by your spaceplane. I also liked the capsule switch, I don't know why, but it's my favorite part of the ship! The music used also fit the video very well, and the blooper reel is something I haven't seen in a while (RIP solar panels which died during aerobraking,). Adding you to the leaderboards now.
  6. 1. No, drop all the tanks you want. 2. 100km 3. a. no b. no c. Maybe, post a screenshot if you don't mind. d. I'm confused, do you mean a radially attached docking port? Could you reply with a screenshot of that too? e. Depends on the context, once again, screenshots will enable more thorough answers. Hope that helps! Please do reply with screenshots so I may better understand your questions.
  7. Man that is a huge ship! Sorry for the delay, I've been looking it over here and there. I have just gotten to the Jool portion of the mission. I know I've been inactive, but I am reviewing the mission. Your drama and solutions to all of your mission issues make for one of the most entertaining mission reports I've read in a while.
  8. Yeah that's fine. You could either make an imgur album and post it here or make the mission its own thread and link the thread here.
  9. Yeah make sure you don't shamelessly copy another design. That's happened once before and didn't end very smoothly. Looks great though! Best of luck in your flight
  10. Congratulations @camacju on completing the Jool 5 challenge, low cost subchallenge! You have beaten the previous record by just over 10,000 funds! I found you Laythe entry maneuver to be quite ballsy, and am impressed how much energy you were able to get out of Mun assists. Stealing the solar panel is also a new strategy that has not been used yet in a Jool 5 submission, so your mission is a first in more ways that one! I'll add your submission to the leaderboard now.
  11. @jinnantonix I eagerly await part 2, just remember to have unmanned exploration done before the colony is constructed. I like your reusable launcher too
  12. Don't feel too embarrassed about it, that's a rookie mistake. You see, what actually happens is that sometimes people mistake Ike for a dwarf planet called Dres. It is the craziest instance of the Mandela effect I have ever seen. I once fell for it when I was a noob, but have since realized that Dres is just like Harvest, a myth surrounding KSP's development.
  13. Sounds good to me, adding you to the leaderboards now. Congratulations on completing the Jool 5 challenge on level 1!
  14. Wow! I have never seen a Jool 5 mission like this one before. Before I can add it to the leaderboard, I want to ask a few questions. 1, could you verify that the Kerbal could have exited and reboarded on the Jool landings? Rule 7 requires them to be able to walk or swim on the surface. From looking at your vessel it definitely looks possible, I just need to see proof that they can embark and reboard. 2, how many total launches were done to put the tankers in orbit? I only ask for leaderboard reasons, I'm not sure if some were done in pairs or if they were all single. I think I saw some go as a pair but I want to be extra sure so I don't mess up the leaderboard for the 90th time. Thanks!
  15. Congratulations @Majkon completing the Jool 5 challenge on level 2! You absolutely smashed the low part count record for the Jool 5 challenge, and managed to do so in a very nicely made video! You are correct that the design is insultingly simply, in fact it makes the entire challenge look easy XD. In regards to the official part count, I think it should be counted as 9 since the RTG (while attached in orbit) still rode inside the ship to get into orbit to begin with. I think going forward for low part count missions, any part brought along in storage and then used counts as a part (EVA equipment excluded obviously). Additionally, since you did this on level 2, I have decided to separate the low part count and low cost missions from being level 1 subchallenges to their own categories. Adding you to the leaderboards now!
  16. Hello, To clarify, are you asking if you can use Kerbals to construct a ship while in LKO? Because if that is the case that is totally fine. However, once the craft leaves LKO, you can't launch any more parts to add to it.
  17. Congratulations on completing the Jool 5 Challenge on level 1! Truly an interesting mission, succeeding in terms of both simplicity and effectiveness. While I say it fits for level 1, I would like to place it in the low parts subcategory, as it beat the previous record of 31 parts. Would you be alright with this?
  18. Congratulations @camacju on completing the Jool 5 challenge on the first level! I was very impressed by your Tylo lander, it is the second nerv-powered lander for Tylo I've ever seen used in a Jool 5 mission. Similarly, your launch stage is something we don't see around here very often, taking a nice departure from the usual moar-boostered rocket. You have already been added to the leaderboard, sorry for my misunderstanding!
  19. Good point. I'll add your submission to the leaderboard now. My apologies, I clearly had a misunderstanding of what the rule was, thanks for calling me out on it!
  20. fixed Kraken drives should be mentioned in the rules, I shall add it now. Very impressive mission, however you did not plant a flag on each moon. Regardless, this is such an impressive mission I want to put it in the gatecrasher section. Would you be alright with that? (Also the editing in the video is very nice. Clean and to the point.)
  21. Congratulations @king of nowhere on completing the Jool 5 Challenge on Jeb's level! In many ways, this is the Jool 5 mission. The amount of roving conducted on each world is mind-boggling and requires patience I cannot fathom, and the flight on Jool was nothing short of nail-biting. This mission is incredible, and I cannot overstate that. I will be adding you to the leaderboards immediately. Please do add the completion badge to your signature, because you have more than earned it for this mission!
  22. Oh yeah don't worry! I've been super busy lately so I looked at half a few days ago and am finishing it up now. I'll ping you as soon as its ready.
